Practical Proverbial, from 1 Peter, 10 June 2020

 “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” 1 Peter 2:24 (NIV). You’ve been here before.   You understand this verse highlights the basic principle of Christianity.   You understood it when you first said, “I believe,” and meantContinue reading “Practical Proverbial, from 1 Peter, 10 June 2020”

Practical Proverbial, from 1 Peter, 21 May 2020

 Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.  1 Peter 2:12 (NIV). This is harsh but I’m going to say it anyway:   some people need to be quiet about Jesus.   Those who reject Jesus ChristContinue reading “Practical Proverbial, from 1 Peter, 21 May 2020”

Practical Proverbial, from Philippians, 25 February 2020

For, as I have often told you before and now tell you again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ.  Philippians 3:18 (EHV). This is a verse that gives me pause, makes me stop and think “am I genuine?”  The promise from Jesus of eternal salvation is unbreakable by anyone butContinue reading “Practical Proverbial, from Philippians, 25 February 2020”

Practical Proverbial, from Titus, 5 August 2019

It trains us to reject ungodliness and worldly lusts and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope, that is, the glorious appearance of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. Titus 2:12-13 (EHV). It happened again.   More shootings, more murder, more violence done on innocents.  Continue reading “Practical Proverbial, from Titus, 5 August 2019”

Practical Proverbial, from 2 Timothy, 20 March 2019

So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner. Rather, join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God.   2 Timothy 1:8 (NIV). Dear fellow believer, we’re going to suffer for this.   You and me, because we boldly say, “I believe in Jesus,” are going to suffer.  Continue reading “Practical Proverbial, from 2 Timothy, 20 March 2019”

Practical Proverbial, from 2 Thessalonians, 11 July 2018

He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might on the day he comes to be glorified in his holy people and to beContinue reading “Practical Proverbial, from 2 Thessalonians, 11 July 2018”

Practical Proverbial, from 1 Thessalonians, Good Friday, 30 March 2018.

May he strengthen your hearts so that you will be blameless and holy in the presence of our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all his holy ones.  1 Thessalonians 3:13 (NIV). Since it’s Good Friday, before you remember that “it is finished,” I’m going to lay some bad news on you that you probably won’tContinue reading “Practical Proverbial, from 1 Thessalonians, Good Friday, 30 March 2018.”

Practical Proverbial, from Hebrews, 9 November 2017

So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.  What can mere mortals do to me?”  Hebrews 13, verse 6. This verse actually goes hand-in-hand with verse 5; as you’ll remember, that verse concludes with “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”  God will never forsakeContinue reading “Practical Proverbial, from Hebrews, 9 November 2017”

Practical Proverbial, from Hebrews, 18 May 2017

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.  Hebrews 10, verses 24-25. I’m building a collection of rocks around the baseContinue reading “Practical Proverbial, from Hebrews, 18 May 2017”
